7:01 am
president obama playing golf this past weekend with tiger woods? neither did we. >> i don't understand what the story is and what the outrage is. you want to watch him shank and slice? >> you know when you have a good weekend when you say sure go have a good weekend with tiger woods. welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is on assignment. cbs news has learned new details about what motivated adam lanza to go on a shooting spree last december in newtown, connecticut. >> the rampage at the sandy hook elementary school killed 20 students and six faculty members. bob orr is in washington. bob, good morning. >> good morning gayle and charlie. law enforcement sources tell cbs news adam lanza was motivated by a violent video game and a strong personal desire to kill more people than another
7:02 am
infamous mass murderer. sources say adam lanza was in direct competition with anders breivik who killed 77 people in july 2011. breivik set off a bomb in downtown oslo killing eight people and moved to a nearby island where he hunted down and fatally shot 69 people, mostly teenagers attending a summer camp. two officials who have been briefed on the connecticut investigation say lanza was obsessed with breivik and wanted to top his death toll. former fbi profiler mary ellen o'toole says copycats are common in high-profile crime >> his mentality is not that i can beat it but i can get more attention, more notoriety, do it more skillfully do it more efficiently. >> reporter: sources say lanza attacked nearby sandy hook elementary school because it was the easiest target with the largest cluster of people but he apparently cut short his rampage as police arrived. unlike breivik who surrendered, lanza killed himself after first
7:03 am
firing several shots at responding officers. investigators also believe violent video games played a role in lanza's murderous fantasies and a trove of material has been recovered from lanza's basement. sources say in lanza's mind the killing of 20 children and six adults may have amounted to some kind of score. sources say he spent countless hours alone in the basement of his home in a private gaming room with the windows blacked out, honing his computer shooting skills. >> this now becomes their full time job, they're totally emerged in it they're cut off from the rest of the family or from friends. it's not that it causes that it fuels what's already there. >> reporter: lanza also made multiple visits to nearby gun ranges with his mother nancy lanza, where they practiced together with actual weapons. three guns registered to nancy lanza were later used in the sandy hook massacre. he killed his mother before the
7:04 am
attack on the school. connecticut state police are publicly dismissing the lanza/breivik theory as "speculation" saying the investigation is not over and no final motive has been established. sources insist investigators found evidence lanza was obsessed with breivik. the fbi is still trying to recover other information from lanza's smashed computer hoping to learn more about what may have pushed lanza to act. gayle, charlie? >> bob orr, thanks. john miller a former fbi assistant director john good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what are we learning about motivation and what might have been in lanza's mind? >> well no one clear signal but the pieces seem to be coming together and they're looking at a lot of the things that were going on in the lanza home. one aspect might be that lanza's mother had gotten a boyfriend, and that's for the first time since the divorce, and apparently this relationship was getting serious to the point that he had stayed over at the lanza house a couple of times. the profilers who look at these
7:05 am
things might tell you adam lanza could have seen this as a real threat to his relationship with his mother which was very close but you start to see things change there. he blacks out the game room so when's in there not even a pinhole of light can come in while he's playing that tactical shooting game. it enhances the reality of it for him. the next thing that happened is even more disturbing he blacks out his own bedroom so no light could come in there either and that kind of suggests that when he wasn't playing his shooting game that was taking up all his time, he was going into almost totally sensory deprivation in his bedroom so they're looking at that aspect too, as things that were adding. >> does anything come from his computer hard drive? >> no nothing. i mean he smashed that hard drive to the point the fbi experts and those experts they've brought it to haven't been able to get anything out of it but the connecticut state police can find information that wasn't on the hard drives that comes from his computer and that is on the servers where
7:06 am
e-mail and text messages and even the chat function that works within that gaming device that he was playing his shooting game on, where you talk to other players, and that may have been revealing, and of course the old-fashioned way, which is talking to the very few people that he considered friends and actually communicated with. >> we're hearing a lot of chilling information as you're pointing out but what are we hearing about his possible motive? >> well, his motive seemed to be basically maximum lethality and one of the things they learned about the particular video game he played that was the shooting game was you didn't get points in the game for shooting another opponent. you only got points for a kill shot, and he seemed to have taken that out of his game into his reality. >> john miller we thank you. john will be back with an interview you'll see only on "cbs this morning." for the first time you will hear from the lapd family hunted by christopher dorner. he was the ex-officer turned
7:07 am
killer who left a manifesto vowing revenge. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." unless a deal is reached we are now ten days away from drastic automatic government spending cuts. congress is on vacation but that is not stopping president obama from pushing for a solution. bill plante is at the white house. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, and good morning out west. in this hour a speech by the president pushing republicans to compromise so that automatic budget cuts won't happen. the president will be surrounded here at the white house by first responders firefighters and emergency workers whose federal grants could be cut if the cuts go into effect and he'll frame the choice as protecting public safety or protecting the kinds of tax loopholes that he wants to cut. when the president returned from a weekend golf vacation monday night, the budget battle was waiting. in less than two weeks more than $85 billion in across-the-board cuts are set to take effect. it will impact virtually every
7:08 am
major agency in washington. the pentagon could see roughly half of the reductions and that has republicans upset. >> we're going to begin to unravel the finest military in the history of the world at a time when we need it most. >> reporter: mandatory cuts in domestic spending could also hit americans hard. there could be furloughs of food safety employees, leading to a shortage of meat poultry and eggs and pushing up food prices. 50,000 tsa workers could see their hours cut back that would mean longer security lines for air travelers, and more than 350,000 people who need mental health treatment could be denied. hundreds of thousands of government workers from teachers to federal law enforcement agents are likely to be furloughed. many republicans admit the sequester isn't ideal, but they insist cuts have to be made. >> let me be very clear and i say this to the president as i say it to you, these spending cuts are going to go through on march 1st. >> reporter: the white house warns the cuts would get phased in just as the stock market is
7:09 am
bouncing back. >> our hope is that this does not happen that, we choose rather than make this an ideological fight as it appears to be right now amongst some on the republican caucus that we just do it a balanced approach to fix this problem. >> reporter: alan simpson and erskine bowles was plan to balance the budget was opposed by both parties will propose another budget of rewriting the tax code and deep spending cuts a compromise they hope will work for republicans and democrats. the fear is the cuts are likely to take place march 1st and last a few weeks until the public feels the pain, and congress gets the message. charlie, gayle? >> bill plante thanks. we told you yesterday about our white house immigration proposal being denounced by some in congress. white house officials say this morning only half the plan was revealed. it would offer illegal immigrants a path to become legal residents. they say the rest of the plan covers long-term issues like bringing more highly skilled
7:10 am
foreign workers to america. former white house adviser david axelrod also says it was a mistake to put out any details of the white house's plan so soon. a new report says china's military is responsible for cyber attacks on the united states and other countries. virginia-based security company says it's traced 141 cases of hacking to a single chinese military unit based outside of shanghai. the report calls that unit "one of the most prolific cyber espionage groups." china's foreign ministry says the charges are groundless. the murder charge against olympic track star oscar pistorius has been upgraded this morning and once again the double amputee became emotional in the south african courtroom. prosecutors revealed for the very first time what they claim happened on the night his girlfriend was shot dead. emma hurd is at the courthouse in pretoria and joins us with the latest. >> reporter: charlie, gayle, oscar pistorius told the court he loved his girlfriend and had no intention of killing her.
7:11 am
the words came in an affidavit read out by his lawyer in which he describes spending a quiet evening at home with reeva steenkamp before hearing a noise late at night. he felt vulnerable because he had received death threats and he wasn't wearing his prosthetic legs. he said he was convinced there was an intruder in the bathroom. he went there and he fired shots through the closed bathroom door. he then describes his fear and his horror at realizing that reeva steenkamp was not in the bedroom. the prosecution claims he intended to kill her. south african prosecutors have now won the right to charge pistorius with premeditated murder and if convicted he could spend the rest of his life in prison. the prosecution claimed the athlete deliberately shot his girlfriend four times in a rage after a valentine's day argument. they say he should stay in custody until his trial begins. pistorius' lawyers argued the killing was a tragic accident.
7:12 am
they say he thought he was shooting an intruder it was not premeditated, they say, and they want him freed to prepare his defense. south african legal expert steven toussant says this say chance for the prosecution to get pistorius' version of events on the record. >> a prosecuteor will focus his questions on the night of the offense and expect factual answers which are under oath and those answers can be used against him in the trial. >> reporter: as what happened on the night of her murder is being disputed in a packed courtroom, reeva steenkamp is being laid to rest at a private funeral in her hometown of port elizabeth. her family faced the cameras to speak of their grief. >> at the end of the day it's a family and there's only one thing missing reeva. >> reporter: back in court there were more tears, pistorius'
7:13 am

7:15 am
it was $3.30 just a month ago. production cuts, a jump in oil prices and the closing of refineries are being blamed. we now know what caused the carnival cruiseship to become stranded in the gulf of mexico. investigators say a leak in a fuel line caused a fire in the engine room of the carnival "triumph." the ship was left without power and working toilets for five days. the ship was eventually towed to alabama but investigators want to know why the ship was adrift for so long. a brazen multimillion-dollar diamond heist, eight masks robbered drove up to a passenger plane headed to switzerland in brussels. they grabbed an estimated $50 million worth of diamonds and at the same time drove out the same way. "the washington post" says european countries won't arm syrian rebels. britain pushed the idea of the meeting of foreign ministers. the u.s. also rejected the idea.
7:16 am
"usa today," there's a change of tactics for teachers and students if they become targets of shooting. in the past they were told to hide and wait for help but now police videos tell victims to confront a shooter if all else fails. "the washington times" says sarah palin is returning to the spotlight, she will address the conservative political action conference next month in maryland. the "wall street journal" finds students who graduate with a degree in the arts wrack up the biggest student loan debt. the average from specialized art schools runs $21,500. graduates from research universities had an average debt of about $18,000. the "los angeles times" says microsoft opened, it says microsoft shuts down its hotmail brand. those who already have a hotmail address can still use it. and "the houston chronicle" says a woman who gave birth to a rare form of quadruplets had two sets of identical twins.

welcome back to "cbs this morning." two married police officers were at the top of revenge killer christopher dorner's hit list. the fired lapd officer not only threatened them but also their children. >> our senior correspondent, john miller, is a former head of the lapd major crimes division. he spoke with the couple in an interview you'll see only on "cbs this morning." good morning to you. >> good morning from los
7:29 am
angeles. when i mitt met phil tangaredes he was working in l.a. before donor earn was fired from the lapd -- dorner was fired from the lapd, he went to the board. and tangaredes went to the board. dorner is now deceased but is accused of killing four and wounding three others. as a member of the board, phil tangaredes recommended dorner's fire, and that put him and his family at the top of dorner's hitlist. captain phillip tangaredes returned to the streets of l.a. with his wife. i asked what it was like for their family two cops with six children living in the cross crosshairs. >> they don't teach us in the academy how to protect your family when there's a maniac that wants to kill your children. >> reporter: captain tangaredes was one of the hearing officers
7:30 am
on the board that fired dorner for making false statements about another officer. dorner's rampage began by targeting randy kwan the lawyer who defended him at the hearing by killing his daughter monica and her fiance keith lawrence. >> what really made it different for me and what really drove it home was that he had already acted. he had already killed somebody else's child. >> reporter: dorner would open fire on other officers who were searching for him. officers believe dorner had stalked them. he was spotted by neighbors outside the tangaredes' home. >> what was it like at home? >> i got the phone call. the first thing i did was call and get hold of the kids to find out where they were. got them together. once we got home, we explained to the kids as best we could that there was a threat but we had to be strong. we had to put up the front that everything's good, you're protected here. >> i didn't sleep at night. we had two officers posted in our back yard. and every 20, 25 minutes, i'd
7:31 am
just get up and look out my window. and there they were standing tall with their gun in hand and their helmet on. and they never slept. >> and what about this threat coming not from a gang member not from a drug boss but from a former lapd officer who you worked with? >> i was in denial. i kept asking my husband, are you sure? the one that worked harbor when i worked harbor? it took a couple of hours for us to really sit down and let this sink in and realize that, you know, this is real. >> reporter: dorner's manifesto named tangeredes and other officers as part of a racially biased lapd establishment that fired him unfairly. but to travel through the streets of southeast l.a. -- >> you doing all right? >> reporter: once ravaged by gang violence, phil and amatta have strong supporters in the neighborhood where police were
7:32 am
once looked on as the enemy. >> some of us when we talk about captain t. and his wife, it doesn't have anything to do with their careers or what they do. they're just good-hearted people and they're real people. >> they're like our family. again, our community has changed tremendously. we went through a lot. and captain and mrs. tangaredes they always been in our corner. >> i've been in southeast for six years. no captain's ever worked here for that long. i'm here because we have made a huge change in the relationship of the police officers with the community. >> were you surprised to see when that dynamic was reversed? when it was you two who were under the gun, that the community responded the way that you have to them?
7:33 am
will. >> i was surprised because normally we're not the recipient of those phone calls and those good words. and we had community members from watts calling and saying "we need you here we can't let anything happen to you." >> did you get to read the manifesto? >> i got through the first two paragraphs and stopped reading. >> one of the things he says is nothing has changed since rampart. nothing has changed since rodney king. nothing's improved since the '90s. what do you think? >> i am an example that things have changed especially within the los angeles police department. i've been given the same opportunity as christopher dorner has been given. >> reporter: searching for a silver lining, phil and amatta say they learned two things -- that the pressure brought on their family last week brought them closer together. and that the community they help protect was ready to protect them, too. >> feels good, though. i was a little apprehensive, but it feels good to be back and
7:34 am
out. it does. >> now when the threat against the family became public an offer of protection came from a most unlikely source charlie and gayle. it was the basis point-- bountyhunters gang, one of the most feared in l.a. offered to protect them and their family. >> what does that say about their relationship to the community? >> that says something unusual, charlie. i mean that is a new level of community outreach and relations that a gang would even make an offer like that for a police officer, let alone a captain. >> has dorner's charge gained any traction anywhere? >> one of the unusual twists is it's gained a lot of traction on twitter, on the internet. there's whole discussions. that probably has to do with the fact that the lapd has a history going back to the rodney king incident the riots and so on. but there's also been a lot of
7:35 am
change since then. and the discussion that's out there doesn't seem to account for a lot of that. >> john miller thank you. the right foods could help your memory, even fight alzheimer's. the nutritionist behind a new book shows how. and tomorrow, a piece of underwater history. we'll show how an explorer stumbled on to a two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across

the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america has never been stronger.

you may be able to lower your risk of alzheimer's disease by making certain choices at mealtime. that advice comes from a new book "power foods for the brain: an effective three-step plan to protect your mind and strengthen your memory." authors dr. neil barnard, nutritionist researcher at george washington university. we're pleased to have you here. welcome.
7:40 am
>> thank you. it's great to be here. >> let's start with what to avoid. >> you know there's nothing more frightening than losing your memory and your connections. most people have thought well, it's just part of aging. i'm going to spend the last five or ten years of my life not knowing anybody. the beautiful news is we now know what seems to be triggering that so that we can avoid it. three things. the first is if you look inside the brain of a person who's getting alzheimer's disease there are little collections of proteins. called beta amyloid. and if you look at what contributes to that, saturated fat, that's the fats in meats and in dairy products. number two, the transfats. doughnuts, pastries. and the third, if you look inside those little amyloid plaques, they have traces of metals -- iron copper aluminum. that can come from cookware everyday products. those things transfats, saturated fats the metals seem to be contributing to that process. we can avoid those things. >> i had to have a moment when you said that in your book. you said healthy diets exclude
7:41 am
meat and dairy, all of which i've eaten in the last 24 hours. you're saying what we should be concentrating and eating are plants? >> the four food groups that everybody should be focusing on -- vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans. when people look at vegetarians, they live longer they have less heart disease. and it looks like they have an edge in mental health as well. less risk of dementia. so for everybody making that big bowl of oatmeal and putting on the blueberries and cinnamon and race in raisins, extra points. researchers have shown even 30 to 40 minutes of exercise, brisk walk three times a week changes the brain physically. the part of the brain called the hip campus that's essential for memory pump up it measury increases over time and counteracts the brain's shrinkage that most people have. >> you said to pay attention to metals. i never thought about that. aluminum, copper even in de deodorant deodorant, cookware. >> if you have a cast iron pan,
7:42 am

good morning to you. it's 8:00. welcome back to "cbs this morning." oscar pistorius tells the court he did shoot his girlfriend. we'll show you the statement from the bail hearing. and with roman catholic cardinals preparing to elect a new pope we'll ask frank lutz what they're telling him. first, here's a look at today's eye opener.
7:59 am
>> law enforcement sources sell cbs news that adam lanza was motivated by violent video games and a strong personal desire to kill more people than another infamous mass murderer. >> we're getting a clearer picture of what went on in his mind. elaborate what that picture was. >> when he wasn't playing his shooting game he was going into almost totally sensory deprivation. >> the president pushing republicans to compromise so automatic budget cuts won't happen. >> oscar pistorius tells the court he loved his girlfriend and had no intention of killing her. >> prosecutors reveal for the very first time what they claim happened on the night his girlfriend was shot dead. >> the officer who led california police on a chase put one family on the top of his hit list. >> we had to be strong. we had to put up a front that everything is good. we're protected here. >> when people look at

vegetarians, they live longer have less heart disease. and it looks like they have an edge in mental health as well. >> a new study found that humans are slowly getting less intelligent. i was going to read the whole study, but i'm just going to wait for the movie. >> today's eye opener at 8:00 is presented by allergen. i'm charlie rose with gayle king. the killing of 20 children and six adults in newtown horrified the nation a few months ago. >> bob orr is in washington with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. law enforcement sources tell us that adam lanza was inspired by violent video games, and he wanted to kill more people than mass murderer anders brefic a mass murderer in norway. he set up a bomb in downtown
8:01 am
oslow, killing eight people there. then he hunted down and fatally shot 69 people at a summer camp on a nearby island. two officials who have been briefed on the connecticut case say that lanza was obsessed with him and violent video games played stormorm some sort of role. in lanza's mind the killing of 20 children and six adults may have amounted to some kind of score. sources say he spent countless hours alone in the basement of his home in a private gaming room with the windows blacked out, honing his computer shooting skills. officials would not say what they found specifically that leads them to believe that lanza was obsessed with the shooting. the connecticut state police are calling it speculative, pointing out the investigation is not over and they say no final motive has been established. charlie, gayle. >> bob thanks. olympic track star oscar pistorius says this morning he shot and killed his girlfriend
8:02 am
by mistake. pistorius claims he thought she was a burglar. in a south african courtroom, his lawyer read a statement. in it, pistorius thought an intruder broke through his bathroom window. he says he didn't have his prosthetic legs on. he claims he felt vulnerable and fired through the locked door. the victim model reeva steenkamp, was buried today. a daring heist at the brussels airport this morning. >> good morning. these diamonds were stolen from the cargo hold of a passenger plane as the plane was preparing to take off. the robbers, eight of them wearing masks, dark clothing and carrying machine guns cut a hole through the airport security fence at some point last night. then they drove through in two black cars flashed their weapons at pilots and security
8:03 am
guards then grabbed possibly tens of millions of dollars in diamonds from that plane's cargo hold. they sped off, apparently through the same hole in the fence. it was all over within a matter of minutes. they never boarded the plane. not a single shot was fired. police have found a burned out van near the airport, but little else in the way of clues at this point. investigators do say that the men were dressed to look like police officers and even had blue lights on their cars. charlie, gayle? >> wow kelly. very bold move. do they have any suspects? >> not as yet. still looking for clues, still looking for suspects. but they're looking for eight men. >> all right. thank you, kelly. a winter storm in the upper midwest is moving east and causing new trouble. the storm created white-out conditions on monday. north dakota shut down traffic on interstate 29 because of blowing snow and poor visibility. let's check in with meteorologist at wcco.
8:04 am
what can you tell us about the storm? >> well gayle, the problems still continue across the dakotas and western minnesota. the bigger problem is what's moving into the midwest tomorrow through thursday into friday. the winter storm watches are up from minneapoliss to kansas city, down through southern parts of kansas as well. interstates 35 90 80 and 70 all under the gun for tough travel over the next several days. the culprit is this storm, dropping into the pacific northwest today. coastal rain, mountain snow and some wind gusts to hurricane force in some mountain passes of the sierra nevada. rain for l.a. coming up later tonight. the storm moves across the rockies, brings some potentially severe weather from austin to dallas starting tomorrow and spreads ice and snow into oklahoma southern kansas and then that snow really picks up through the day wednesday into thursday. look at these totals. over a foot and a half possible in the pink area. windy, too.
8:05 am
possibly blizzard conditions. three to six inches of snow reaching toward the twin cities. on the east side of this storm, there's flooding going on right now in the gulf coast. there will be more of that thursday through the weekend with the rain from this snow maker. >> mike, thank you. there is no sign of a break in washington in the battle of bucket budget cuts. president obama is pushing congress to make smaller cuts. bill is at the white house. >> reporter: good morning. this hour the president is speaking making the case that congress should keep the spending cuts from going into effect. >> it's so troubling that just ten days from now congress might allow a series of automatic severe budget cuts to take place. >> reporter: in less than two weeks, more than $85 billion in across the board cuts are set to take effect. the pentagon would see roughly half of those reductions and that's a major point of contention among republicans.
8:06 am
still, it's the mandatory cuts in domestic spending that would hit americans the hardest. there could be furloughs of food safety employees leading to a shortage of meat poultry and eggs and pushing up food prices. 50,000 tsa workers could see their hours cut back. that would mean longer security lines for air travelers. and more than 350,000 people who need mental health treatment could be denied. hundreds of thousands of government workers from teachers to federal law enforcement agents are also likely to be furloughed. many republicans admit that the sequester is not the ideal way to go but the cuts have to be made. the president is attempting now to use public opinion to force them into a compromise. >> bill, thanks. hip replacement surgery has to be redone far more often in women than men. a study published in jama internal medicine show hip replacements fail about 2% of the time. however, they fail 29% more often in womewomen. researchers say they do not know

the surprise resignation of the surprise resignation of pope benedict is leading to soul searching amongst some catholics. we sat down with nearly two dozen of the faithful. they talked about the role of the church in their lives and where the vatican should go from here. >> pope benedict did something no pope has done in 600 years. he's calling it quits. that poses a question for catholics in this country. how important is the pope to your own faith? >> very important. >> okay. one at a time. >> he's the main figure of the church. everybody looks to him for the answer of everything. i mean if he's not going to be there, then who is everybody going to turn to? >> you're 20 years old. >> right. >> you don't look like a church goer. >> i know. >> but what does he represent to you that makes him so important? >> he's that miracle behind the faith. he will be there whenever something goes wrong.
8:13 am
>> first, when i heard it the first thing i thought is what scandal is going to come up? >> if there is something being masked, is he really resigning to not confront it? >> to me, it's a let down. it's discouraging. >> it lets us down. it feels like we don't have a leader, someone that leads by the catholic religion. >> i disaree. i think it's for the gooed for all masses. he wants to be fully functional to all. if he can't conform to the duties of the pope then he should step aside. >> i want to understand what catholicism means to you personally. >> you live it. it's not just i believe this and i'm going to sit there in the corner. >> sometimes the dogmas are just a little too strict for me. i do believe in compassion but i think, you know, i'm a little more open with choice. i think, you know, a woman's right to choose. >> i don't believe in abortion. however, in this society now,
8:14 am
i'm just not going to tell somebody else you can't do it you know. and that kind of puts you at odds with your own belief. but in this society, you have to be more or less politically correct. >> society has evolved. the catholic religion has not. >> when you go to pc you don't have a conversation like this. i mean it's crazy. i can't say, gee, i love christ you know, because somebody may be muslim. wait a minute i have friends who a muslim. we talk about things. i don't care what religion somebody is. there's good and bad everything. >> so what's happening to the church? >> need i remind you of the scandals of the past ten years of what has happened? >> at this point, if i had to leave my child with a priest for him to watch my child for the day, that would not happen. >> oh, come on. >> it would not happen. i would not leave my child. i would not. because there's too much that has happened in the past that it can repeat itself, and i will not ever do that. >> who in this room would be
8:15 am
uncomfortable leaving their children with a priest? >> depends on the priest. >> why, why? priests are supposed to be -- >> i understand that. however, you leave your child in good faith, right, for them to learn something from the priest not for them to be abused. >> so who do you blame? do you blame those who have lost faith? >> i blame the priests that have done it, but you can't blame every priest. >> so looking at the fact that there will be a new pope looking at the scandals and listening to your description of your faith, are the best years of the catholic church still ahead? >> the catholic religion has to regain the trust of its followers. >> they need to take accountability. >> that's the first step in gaining the trust. >> i think that for our next pope, we're going to have to get somebody that's reinvigorating to the religion somebody that i guess, quote/unquote, is more out of the box. >> someone we can look to that
8:16 am
we feel we'll be secure with for a while. >> how many of you believe you're going to live a better life after you leave this world? raise your hand. so your faith says that after you're gone from here your life will actually be better. >> yes, definitely. it's got to be better than this. [ laughter ] >> frank joins us now. so summarize. what do they want in a pope, and what do they want for their church? >> they're hoping for somebody younger because they want the enthusiasm and energy that pope john paul ii brought to the catholic church. they want somebody who doesn't necessarily look like them. they want somebody who really has a sense of passion that wants to reignite catholicism, not just in america, but across the globe. >> did they say -- you said they want someone who doesn't necessarily look like them. did they mention latin america or africa? >> they mentioned there's a catholic leader out of brazil
8:17 am
that several of them spoke of. they're looking for someone who will bring accountability to the church someone who will reinvigorate that sense of enthusiasm for catholicism and someone who's going to be around for a long long time. >> frank, thank you. >> thank you. some parents spend years trying to get their children to eat healthy food. we'll show you some ideas ahead on "cbs this morning." mine was earned in djibouti, africa, 2004. the battle of bataan 1942.

the globe. "the new york times" says israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is in hot water over his ice cream budget. netanyahu is accused of spending $2,700 a year in government funds on the dessert. the prime minister's office is canceling his contract with the supplier. "britain guardian" says meteor fragments that exploded over russia are fetching sky-high prices on line. one small chunk is being sold for $10,000. experts are warning buyers to watch out for fakes. the real ones should have a smooth crust like baked bread. even then the meteorites still need to be verified by professionals. "the boston globe" says more women are breadwinners in the family, making up 47% of household earnings up from 38% in 1988. the husband's amount has dropped to 58%. the last recession hit men especially hard. the "wall street journal" says scientists are looking at how much genetics play a role in whether you like exercising your lung capacity and ability to

8:31 am
comment about "ncis los angeles." >> tonight is the start of a new season. you're directing. >> yeah. i finished directing an episode that's going to be on march 5, which was my first time directing. great, new experience for me. whole new appreciation for how many people work on the show. i mean it really is -- as an actor, you think it's just the crew that you see on the set every day. suddenly when you direct you have your two weeks of preproduction and -- meeting everyone in the office, that sort of thing. the post production which was a great experience getting to go in and, you know you see the kind of basic assembly that an editor's put together. but being able to tweak the scenes and find the special beats is what was really exciting for me. >> did if feel good like something you would like to do? >> absolutely. this is such a great opportunity to have that experience. it's -- being allowed into a special workshop. it's different than if i went and directed on -- an independent film or something. you have a lot more artistic leeway. here we've got a framework.
8:32 am
the show works a certain way. and there are higher ups that have total control over what will ultimately be put on the screen. an amazing learning experience for me. >> that's nice. >> what's going to happen in "ncis"? >> well, this is a bridge episode that i directed involving some stolen nuclear weapons. that's going to come up, i think, toward the end of the season, as well. but my character's storyline was light so his a few days off to direct the scenes. that's tricky, when you're actually in the scene and you're -- a three-page scene and you're there and watching the monitor. god, i've got to go in. you have to jump into character and get into the scene. >>. >> it's my turn, my turn. i've got to get in. one of the most fascinating things to me, and i know it's a story that's been told, but i love it, chris, that you have five kids. >> i do. >> that you made your decision early on in your career either i'm going to be married family man or the hot hollywood guy. how did you decide that this was the way to go? you could have done both. >> i don't know that it was that

premeditated. i never thought i would get married at 26. my dad got married at 35. i figured i'd go down that road. sounded like a pretty good program to me. it wasn't anything -- i met the right girl and that really was the deciding factor. looking back, it's -- i think you got to be true yourself and what you know who you are. >> yep. >> that f that makes sense. >> it does. >> i knew i wanted to have a family. i come from one of seven and it was important to me. doesn't mean you can't do it at a different time in your life. but for me i met the right girl -- >> at the right time. >> your best friend's sister? >> exactly. and -- you know i think i knew deep down it was -- she was -- i knew she was the right one, but i also knew this was real life to me. >> did you actually think i'm making a conscious decision family versus stardom, or did you do what you want to do, believing you can have both and things will work out? >> i think i knew in the back of my head -- you know, it was
8:34 am
turning down a different road for sure. >> yeah. >> because it -- it is part of the whole business when you're young, you know, single guy in the business, to kind of play up that side of the role. it is. it adds to the whole thing. but it wasn't who i was. i met the right person. i think looking back, it seemed more strategic -- it wasn't. i fell in love and got married. >> you make her sound amazing. >> she is an amazing girl. i remember when i called my parent and told them i was getting married. my dad almost fell over. they loved my wife -- >> part of the fun, too -- >> shocked. >> what does the "g "stand for? >> we still don't know. i don't know. >> you don't know? >> i think we're going to find out next year maybe. it's been something that has been an ongoing sort of -- trying to find out who he is who his family. is he's lived in 20 different foster homes growing up. it's been a constant search. >> complicated. the part of the fun of the show is the chemistry between you and l.l. cool jay. he was on last week at the grammys. i happened to bump his arm. it's like a brick. >> yeah.
8:35 am
>> i'm thinking -- >> yeah. marble. it's unbelievable. people come visit on the set, it's -- part of my tour is -- come on out again. you got let somebody grab your arm here. >> chris o'donnell, congratulations. continued success. >> thank you very much. thank you. >> and you can see chris o'donnell on "ncis: los angeles" at 9:00 8:00 central on cbs. david kelly brought the world the computer mouse. founder of the silicon valley firm that uses human behavior to design things we use every day. kelly's team showed "60 minutes" how in just two days they found new ways to get kids eating healthier. >> big thing about this type of thinking is it allows people to build on the ideas of others. instead of -- instead of just having one thread, you think about it -- i come up with an idea, somebody from somewhere else says, oh that makes me think we should do this. we could do that. you get to a place that you just can't get to in one mind. >> the key to unlocking creativity at ideo may be their
8:36 am
unorthodox approach to problem solving. they throw a bunch of people with different backgrounds together in a room. you're in the business end? >> yep. >> my background is in software engineering. >> journalism. >> aerospace engineer. >> doctors, opera singers, anthropologists for example, and get them to brainstorm. you got to have a certain culture. you got to have collaboration. you got to have diversity. you got to have an anthropologist and business person and an engineer and computer scientist all of those -- >> you got it. that's the hard part is the cultural thing of having a diverse group of people and having them be good at building on each other's ideas. >> they encourage wild ideas and visualized solutions by making actual prototypes. but the main tenet is empathy for the consumer. figuring out what humans really want by watching them. >> if you want to improve a piece of software, all you have to do is watch people using it and see when they grimace, then correlate that to where they are in the software and fix that right? and so the thing is to really
8:37 am
build empathy. try to understand people through observing them. >> in other words, the experience will communicate what you need to focus on. >> yeah. exactly. so if i give you a project to work on, an area to work on, you need to understand everything that surrounds that. like you understand the people that we use it you have to talk to experts about what's going on. >> in this case, the experts are kids. >> we're trying to understand what they feel and what they think. >> the team split up and tried to learn as much as possible about what kids like and don't like. they watched kids at home and watch them at school. one team even goes shopping with kids. >> what do you think would you get it? if there was a snack of the month club? >> at home the teams brainstorm or-year ideate as they call it. every idea no matter how crazy -- >> justin bieber's face -- >> is jotted on a post-it note and thrown on a wall.
8:38 am
then comes the prototype. >> yep. then comes the prototype. >> how important is that? >> really important. the thing that's important about prototyping is you want everybody in the world to help you. so the way you can visualize that is to paint a picture of the future with your idea in it. so i make the experience of what it's like to have this. >> go up and down -- >> the kids are brought back in to test the prototypes and give feedback. >> i think it's a pretty good idea that it comes to you. >> then i show you again and you say, you know i think it should be bigger. >> you play with it and modify -- almost like sculpturing. >> right. >> after just two days of work the team unveils five final products. ♪ >> a melody fork that makes music when you eat food like vegetables. >> we have kitchens -- >> and cooking skills allow you to earn points and graduate levels. and a bracelet that tracks movement and lets kids challenge their friends to be active.
8:39 am
>> it's encouraging me to be active throughout the day. if i go home and i'm not green, maybe mom says, you know you need to do more activity before you watch tv. >> interesting. we think of designers as designing cars and jewelry and things like this. this team is designing solutions to big social issues. >> they're enthusiastic. there's something about working in an environment where everybody's enthusiastic that i think makes -- >> they come from different places and collaborate at a high level. >> yeah. i like it. john kerry says he's got some big heels to fill. three of the last four secretaries of state, as you know, have been women including madeleine albright. we'll talk to her about the many
8:40 am
8:41 am
the new secretary of state,
8:42 am
john kerry planning his trip to the middle east next week. one of his goals is to find answers to the deepening crisis in syria. with us, former secretary of state madeleine albright who served under president clinton. thank you for being here. >> great to be with you. thank you. >> the "new york times" reports that there is a possibility that the obama administration will reconsider its past decisions not to arm the rebels. is that the right move at this time? >> well, charlie, i think the important part is always to follow whatever is going on and decide what the best thing to do is. i know when we were in office, you look at an issue, you make a decision. it's a rolling decision. but i think they're watching it very, very carefully. and what's been amazing is the amount of aid that the u.s. government has given to syria nonlethal aid. >> the question is was it the right decision not to arm them earlier? >> i think it was. i think it was done very carefully with the idea that there are a lot of arms in there. i do think it's also correct to
8:43 am
keep looking at these decisions because the situation changes. i think it's great -- i don't know exactly where secretary kerry is going, but obviously he knows a great deal about the subject. and his views will be very, very important in all of this. >> did you get a kick out of john kerry saying that he had very -- he had large heels to fill? >> i have to say, he stole my line. when i became secretary of state i said -- i hope my heels fill warren christopher's shoes. we go back and forth on that. >> so when you look at the challenges facing the united states also on the table is iran has a meeting next week. do you believe sanctions are working, and do you believe the iranian behavior may change? >> this is going to be a talk now, february 26 about the p-5 plus one. they are going to keep pushing iran. and i think the sanctions are working because we hear an awful lot about problems within the iranian economy.
8:44 am
but ultimately we're going to have to see what our policy is as the president said, containment is not enough. and all options are on the table. but these are important talks because they do have to be a multilateral push to isolate iran internationally. >> you were the only one at the table that knows what it's like to step down as secretary of state. how do you think hillary clinton is feeling? do you all have secretary of state withdrawal? >> well, i don't know about her. i certainly did. >> did you? >> i think part of the issue is you go like a bat out of hell basically -- >> yeah. >> until kind of noon of the day that you don't anymore. and you have always read the papers and followed you guys on news. and you think, i have to say some being that. and all of a sudden you're not secretary of state, and you don't have to say anything about it. but there is a certain amount of withdrawal. and i loved being secretary of state. so it's -- you know there's so many other things. but i do understand, you know that kind of like being dropped off a cliff. >> yeah. >> looking at history for a moment with the looming world war ii, you talk about your
8:45 am
parents feeling the helplessness of czechoslovakian leaders. >> well my book really does analyze what happened at the beginning of world war ii, how it happened. you know, kind of a feeling of being left alone, the fact that the major powers in the world let this small country be sold down the river. and i think that comes with a sense of trying to figure out how this happened, why it happened, what the consequences of it were going to be. i think basically kind of a feeling who've cares, why do people care. >> thank you madam secretary. good to have you here. >> good to see you. >> madeleine albright's book is out in paperback. a finish line for a race to the oscars. this is the final day of voting for the academy. one of the big winners could be "silver linings playbook." we'll talk to the author who saw his book turn into a movie next on "cbs this morning."

8:51 am
means a lot to myself. i feel like we have very good chances. but i also feel like we already won because people are talking about mental health. you know, it's making people feel better about situations creating dialogue. >> matthew? we're out of time but thank you very much. good luck to the film and to you. >> good luck. >> that does it for us. up next local news.
